The Joy Of Autumn

12 Dec

The Joy Of Autumn…

Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles, was the greatest feast in Biblical times. Sukkot took place not in the beginning, but at the end of the Hebrew year – not in spring, but in the autumn. In the world, the party of youth, beauty, health, ability and power is at the beginning of life.

In the autumn of life there’s less celebrating because all those things only go downhill. In God, it’s the opposite. The biggest celebration comes at the end, in autumn. God saves the best for last. The things of the world always get worse and old and dry and fade away, but the things of God always get better.

The peace of God as you move on, gets more peaceful. The life of God, the more you go on with it, becomes even more alive. The joy of God, becomes more joyful, the fullness of God, becomes more full.

So throw away that worldly pursuit. Pursue God and keep going even when it’s tough, because God always saves the best for last. In God, it only gets better, and with God, the party comes in autumn.

Consider the blameless, observe the upright; a future awaits those who seek peace. Psalm 37:37

Get into the joy of pursuing God with all your heart and mind, forget the temporary distractions this life.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
